Eyebrow Hair Loss: 5 Causes and Treatments

Do your eyebrows seem thinner every time you look in the mirror? Your eyebrow hairs can stop growing or get thinner over time, just like the hair on other parts of your body. High-quality tattoo machine pens can help you recreate the look of hair strands on your eyebrows so that you don’t feel self-conscious about your looks.

Here are some reasons why you might be losing your eyebrow hairs:

Alopecia areata

This autoimmune disease causes the immune system to attack your body’s hair follicles, halting or slowing down your hair production. Alopecia has several different types:

  • Alopecia areata can cause random bald spots
  • Frontal fibrosing alopecia can cause scalp scarring and eyebrow loss
  • Alopecia Universalis causes a complete disappearance of hair

There aren’t any known reasons for the triggers of this disease—it comes and goes, with most of the hair growing back in periods of inactivity. It can also affect toenails and fingernails.

Nutrient deficiencies

Your body requires various kinds of nutrients which include energy sources, fatty and amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. A lot of these can influence or sustain your hair growth, and changes in any of them can affect your hair.

A zinc or vitamin A deficiency can slow your body’s cellular growth and decrease the production of sebum. Other deficiencies which can cause hair loss include:

  • Biotin
  • Iron
  • Vitamin C
  • Cysteine
  • Vitamins D, E, and B-12
  • Omega-3 fatty acids


Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema causes irritation, redness, itching, and oozing in the skin. It’s triggered by sensitivities in the immune system and can either be an ongoing condition or a one-time thing.

Since hair follicles exist within the skin, this condition can affect your hair growth.


This autoimmune disorder causes your skin cells to dramatically increase in number, causing painful, scaly, thick, and red patches that block the hair follicles and stop your hair growth.

Thyroid issues

Problems with your thyroid gland can cause hair loss in the eyebrows. The thyroid gland helps regulate your metabolic system by producing special hormones. If it produces too little or too much of a certain hormone, your bodily functions become dis-balances, disrupting many normal processes including hair growth.

Hypothyroidism caused brain fog, weight gain, and fatigue, while hyperthyroidism can cause weight loss, heart palpitations, and bulging eyes.
